    Wing Ding - Bite Me bids salud to the Cinco revelers

    Bite Me knows her history, dammit. Cinco de Mayo ain't truly a big Mexican holiday. But anything for an excuse to go out on a Monday night, ya know? Bite Me had her sights set on Dos Gringos and was en route when she received a call from trusty pho...

    Atomic Fusion - A marriage of tasty and gourmet

    Fusion co-owner Jennifer Long is apologizing that the restaurant has run out of field greens. Would romaine be okay in my melon salad, she wonders? Absolutely, I assure her. By the way, she adds, the menu description of "melon" salad is kind of misle...

    Bones to Pick - Day of the dead is part of Mexican history

    It was in search of a java jolt at the Willow House that I first came across Los Mestizos and their funky Chicano art. Lots of local artists place their wares in the hippie hangout, a coffee-house conversion of a century-old house downtown. But it wa...

    Turning Tricks - A day late and a dollar short

    Bite Me will be honest with y'all. She ain't always on time. She's been known to be late. Like frequently. Yeah, yeah, yeah. But she always, always intends to be prompt and means to arrive at a predetermined location at an agreed-upon time. Seems, t...

    sNooze, You Lose

    My constantly curious pal has an honest question. "What's with all the different types of pasta in the world? I get that they come in different shapes, but are they really different noodles?" It's an appropriate inquiry, given that we're hunkered o...

    Mayo My! - March and May, months to drink by

    The night was cool and I was into the groove of old-school Chaka Kahn blasting on my car stereo as I cruised down Central Avenue in Phoenix. But my music high came to a sudden end when I heard the DJ make an announcement. "Come witness the world's ...

    Postino, Post-eye No-no - Bite Me goes postal, well sort of

    For her 14 devoted readers, Bite Me will explain her absence last week. She scared the bejesus out of her co-workers by fainting dead away at the keyboard -- no lie, this really happened -- and hit her head on her way to the office floor. Blood. Scre...

    Blown Away - Looking for local restaurants to ease the pain

    I'm in mourning. My favorite Mexican restaurant in the world has closed. It blew up, actually. Earlier this month, Costa Brava was flattened by a gas explosion. So what if the cafe is an almost five-hour drive away, in Rocky Point, Mexico? I've been ...

    Fruit Fetish - Mango madness on the run

    Years ago I discovered a little hole-in-the-wall bakery on 16th Street. The bread is terrific. But what really got my attention was the lady standing in front of the building. Maybe five feet tall, she had a solid and plump build. Her skin was very...

    Torte Reform

    There's no question why my mom and I have decided to eat at the new Franco's Italian Caffe tonight. We can pretend it's convenience -- the restaurant is located in the Esplanade, arguably the center of the Valley, and other members of our dinner part...

    Sapporno - Bite Me gets raw

    Bite Me was having her hair, er, styled the other day and found herself deeply engrossed in a conversation with her mane magician Katrina about passion fruit and mango. Not the kind they pretend to throw into shampoo so you think you're scrubbing you...

    Pie vs. Pie - Digging out of the Valley's pizza rut

    I'm feeling like that guy in Mystic Pizza, the cozy Julia Roberts movie from 1988. Remember him? He played "The Everyday Gourmet," a TV restaurant critic who traveled to Mystic, Connecticut, just for a bite of Mystic Pizza pie. He was endearingly p...

    Corn Stalking - Mexican kernals equal culinary art

    "Eloooootes, eloooootes," chanted Jaime, an awkward and petite man. As though in a trance he stood there, all five feet of him, dressed in his white cotton manta pants wrapped tightly around each leg, selling his young, white, tender and sweet corn o...

    Strip Steak - Bite Me gets a piece of meat at Christie's

    Bite Me was longing for the hot, sexy strip club vibe of Sunset Boulevard, so she started asking around about strip clubs in Phoenix. She was concerned that they may not exist in abundance, since Phoenix seems to be all too rife with family values an...

    War Rations - Portions aplenty are Basis for contentment

    Warm-up Act - In English or Espaol, we all scream for ice cream

    It's only April, and already I'm waking up in a pool of sweat. Ugh. Like insects crawling over a corpse, an army of air-conditioning repair trucks is beginning to fan out over the city as we begin our inevitable death-spiral into summertime heat. ...

    Gimme Moore's - Bite Me crashes a wacky wedding shindig

    After her St. Paddy's Day whiskey and cabbage fest, the last thing Bite Me needed was another Bushmill's hangover. But for weeks her editor had been bugging her about some place down by Arizona State University, Casey Moore's Oyster House. He kept go...

    Big Fat Greek Tragedy - Film knockoff is awash in Mediterranean mediocrity

    No, I haven't seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The premise rankles my sensibilities way too much (really, a chick is dried up and desperate because she isn't married by 30?). Even though the public at large seems to love it, I have to keep in mind that...
